These positions are four year terms.
To qualify as a candidate a person must be:

Vote by Mail
All South Salt Lake elections have a vote-by-mail option. Every eligible, active voter will be mailed a ballot at least three weeks prior to Election Day (an active voter is a voter that has voted at least once in the last four years).
Ballots are not forwarded. However, if a ballot is returned as "undeliverable" with a forwarding address within Salt Lake County, the Salt Lake County Clerk's Election Division will spoil the returned ballot, update the address, and send a new ballot for their new precinct.
The Salt Lake County Election Division will mail ballots weekly to newly registered voters or to those voters who have moved and updated their address. Ballots will be mailed daily the week prior to Election Day.
